Question: Any Grey’s Anatomy scoop? Especially on Meredith and Derek? —Bridget
Ausiello: ABC wants them both back next season. I hear the network has begun preliminary talks with the show’s original castmembers (including Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey) to extend their contracts beyond the current season.
My guess? Dempsey will agree to return for an abbreviated number of episodes; everyone else will be back full-time. (Again, that’s just my guess.)
As for Sandra Oh, if her co-star Kevin McKidd was to guess, Sandra will be around for season 9.
